TOP 10 PROBIOTIC FOODS

I gleemed this from one radio network post. Found probiotics a good remedy for many Westerners.  

i found this list pretty straight forward useful.. I thought my fave kim chee would be higher up near sauerkraut. Chocolate was a surprise, no wonder i crave it ha.

pro-life-aqautic top 10 foods is…

1. Yogurt. 

One of the best probiotic foods is live-cultured yogurt, especially handmade. Look for brands made from goat milk that has been infused with extra forms of probiotics like lactobacillus or acidophilus. Goat’s milk and cheese are particularly high in probiotics like thermophillus, bifudus, bulgaricus and acidophilus. Be sure to read the ingredients list, as not all yogurts are made equally. Many popular brands are filled with High Fructose Corn Syrup, artificial sweeteners and artifical flavors.

2. Kefir

Similar to yogurt, this fermented dairy product is a unique combination of goat milk and fermented kefir grains. High in lactobacilli and bifidus bacteria, kefir is also rich in antioxidants. Look for a good, organic version at your local health food shop.

3. Sauerkraut

Made from fermented cabbage (as well as other vegetables), sauerkraut is not only extremely rich in healthy live cultures, but also aids in reducing allergy symptoms. Sauerkraut is also rich in vitamins B, A, E and C.

4. Dark Chocolate

Probiotics can be added to high-quality dark chocolate, up to four times the amount of probiotics as many forms of dairy. This is only one of the health benefits of chocolate.

5. Microalgae

This refers to super-food ocean-based plants such as spirulina, chorella, and blue-green algae. These probiotic foods have been shown to increase the amount of both Lactobacillus and bifidobacteria in the digestive tract. They also offer the most amount of energetic return, per ounce, for the human system.

6. Miso Soup

Miso is one the main-stays of Japanese traditional medicine, and is commonly used in macrobiotic cooking as a digestive regulator. Made from fermented rye, beans, rice or barley, adding a tablespoon of miso to some hot water makes an excellent, quick, probiotic-rich soup, full of lactobacilli and bifidus bacteria.

Beyond its important live cultures, miso is extremely nutrient-dense and is believed to help neutralize the effects of environmental pollution, alkalinize the body and stop the effects of carcinogens in the system.

7. Pickles

Believe it or not, the common green pickle is an excellent food source of probiotics. Try making your own home-made pickles in the sun. Here’s a great set of instructions for making your own probiotic-rich dill pickles.

8. Tempeh

A great substitute for meat or tofu, tempeh is a fermented, probiotic-rich grain made from soy beans. A great source of vitamin B12, this vegetarian food can be sautéed, baked or eaten crumbled on salads. If prepared correctly, tempeh is also very low in salt, which makes it an ideal choice for those on a low-sodium diet.

9. Kimchi

An Asian form of pickled sauerkraut, kimchi is an extremely spicy and sour fermented cabbage, typically served alongside most meals in Korea. Besides from beneficial bacteria, Kimchi is also a great source of beta-carotene, calcium, iron and vitamins A, C, B1 & B2. Kimchi is one of the best probiotic foods you can add to your diet, assuming you can handle the spice, of course.

10. Kombucha Tea

This is a form of fermented tea high in healthy gut bacteria. This probiotic drink has been used for centuries and is believed to help increase your energy, enhance your wellbeing and maybe even help you lose weight. However, kombucha tea may not be the best fit for everyone, especially those that already have a problem with candida.

Do you have any favorite foods with probiotics that I may have missed? Let me know in the comments below!

Other Sources of Probiotics

Besides from the list of probiotic foods above, you can also get plenty of beneficial bacteria by taking a probiotic supplement. I personally would recommend taking Latero-Flora, but Garden of Lifes Primal Defense Ultra is also a great option.

super foods, herbs and tonics

December 28, 2012 at 7:18 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Your immune system is vast and complex. It is designed to detoxify your body as well as protect your body from illness and foreign invaders.Harmful bacteria, viruses, calcium-forming micro-organisms, and candida are part of our world. Unfortunately, so are toxic chemicals, including everything from pesticides to car pollution to nuclear radiation to most municipal tap waters. In our world, these harmful micro-organisms and the endless list of toxic chemicals assault our immune system consistently. Coupled with these assaults are the daily stresses of life and their deleterious effects upon us.

All of these add up to a weakened immune system: colds and flus, coughs, fevers, chronic health problems, skin disorders, digestive distress, nervous conditions, chronic fatigue, and even cancer. When the body has too much to deal with, it stops being able to get rid of its waste efficiently and requires more support to help it fight off what is attacking it.

Fortunately, our immune system can be improved and empowered to such a point that not only can the harmful microbes be halted and the chemicals detoxified, but also a “stress defense shield” may be built up that can even drive off the effects of daily stress.

From my perspective it appears that a great thrust of research on health and longevity is pointing towards improving our immune system – that within an empowered immune system are the health solutions and longevity answers we’re looking for.

We all can learn more about how to empower our own immunity. I believe the best way to activate genius within the immune system is by ingesting certain superherbs and superfoods, taking probiotics and cultured foods, minimizing toxic food exposure by eating pure organic raw-living foods, and making appropriate healthy lifestyle improvements.

In 400 BC Hippocrates said, “Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food.” Both aspects of this phrase must be considered – not just food as medicine, but also medicine as food – that means superfoods (the most nutrient-rich plant foods in the world) and tonic superherbs (herbs that can be taken regularly like food). Out of 40,000+ herbs used worldwide, perhaps only 50-60 of them are tonic superherbs. These superherbs should be taken for long periods, because, like all tonics, they are more like food and they build health treasures within and nourish our “stress defense shield.”

Whenever possible, try to include the following superfoods, superherbs, and super products in your daily regime:

Reishi Mushroom: Reishi is Queen of the Medicinal Mushrooms. Reishi is the most well-studied herb in the history of the world. She has been the most revered herbal mushroom in Asia for over 2,000 years. The Daoists consider Reishi an “elixir of immortality” that is celebrated for its ability to significantly improve the functioning of the immune system by protecting us from the onslaught of viruses, bacteria, unwanted guests, pollution, chemicals, molds, and the toxicity that we are often subjected to in our world. Reishi helps build up our “stress defense shield” creating feelings of well-being within, in spite of outer stresses.

Chaga Mushroom: Chaga is the King of the Medicinal Mushrooms. It contains the highest amounts of anti-tumor compounds of any herb. These compounds are in the form of betulin, betulinic acid, and lupeol, which are powerful anti-mutagenic compounds naturally present in the white part of the birch tree’s bark (in which the chaga typically grows). Chaga is also extremely high in nourishing phytochemicals, nutrients, and free-radical scavenging antioxidants, especially melanin. Chaga is second only to cacao (the chocolate nut) in antioxidant content. Chaga is the most powerful cancer-fighting herb known and fights all kinds of radiation damage to healthy tissue.

Gynostemma: According to the scientific herbal research being conducted in the People’s Republic of China, gynostemma has been identified as the most medicinal of all the Chinese herbs. It contains 120 saponins (immune modulating molecules that are fat soluble on one side of the molecule and water soluble on the other side) – all of which possess specific, dual-directional health-giving properties (e.g. if our immune system is down, these saponins can modulate it up; if our immune system is too far up, they can modulate the immune response down). Gynostemma is a true tonic, you can take it or make tea out of it nearly every day with benefits that accrue the more you consume it. Gypenoside 49 (49th of the 120 saponins) has been identified as a telomerase activator that youthens us genetically.

Ginseng: Known throughout the world for its amazing energy restoring and strength-building properties, ginseng is an adaptogen that helps our bodies “adapt” to stressful environmental conditions. Ginseng root can boost energy, induce mental alertness, improve the ratio of healthy hormones (thereby acting as a subtle aphrodisiac), and increase endurance. Ginseng also helps fight pain and alleviate radiation damage to healthy tissues.

Chlorella: Chlorella is a natural, green, micro-algae, superfood detoxifier. Chlorella is the highest chlorophyll containing plant in the world with 40 times the chlorophyll content of the best wheatgrass juice known. The chlorophyll binds with heavy metals and chemical toxins, helping to eliminate them from the brain and nervous system. Chlorella is also a complete protein source that contains youthening and rejuvenating growth factors.

Zeolites: Zeolites are a form of unique, volcanic mineral compounds with crystalline structures that form a sort of “cage.” This “cage” works like a magnet to attract heavy metals, chemicals, and other pollutants (e.g. radioactive isotopes), capturing them and allowing their easy removal (without being re-absorbed) from the body. Zeolites have been shown to have anti-viral and cancer-fighting effects.

 

Shilajit: Contains 80+ minerals and fulvic acid that assist in the removal of toxins, improve nutrition to cells and help restore electricity to the blood. Shilajit promotes the movement of minerals into muscle, tissue, and bone. It is an Ayurvedic mineral-herb with over 5,000 years of known human usage in the Himalayas. The word “shilajit” translates as “born of stone and destroyer of weakness.”

 

Astragalus Root: This chi-building root is one of the most potent immune tonics used to improve the lungs, strengthen muscles, increase metabolism, reduce stress, and strengthen the genetics. The first telomerase activator product to make it into the market is TA-65, an extract of astragalus.

 

Camu Camu Berry: This plant-derived Vitamin C source will super boost your immune system and help repair connective tissue. Botanical vitamin C sources (such as Camu) are coming into favor in preference over synthetic ascorbic acid products due to their complete array of vitamin C enhancing bioflavonoids, copper, rutin, and other co-factors that make vitamin C work better. Camu Camu is one of the most concentrated supplies of Vitamin C in the world, and a powerful antioxidant. It is ranked by Dr. James Duke as one of the most powerful, single health-giving botanical substances. Dr. Duke is a world-famous botanist who worked for the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service for 30 years while developing one of the world’s most comprehensive Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Databases.

 

Probiotics: Consuming a combination of good quality probiotics (these include friendly bacteria such as: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus infantis, B. longum, L. bulgaricus, S. thermophilus, L. plantarum, L. salivarius, Enterococcus faecium, etc.) and cultured and fermented foods (that contain live probiotics) such as coconut and other kefirs, unpasteurized sauerkraut and kim chi, etc. will lead to enhanced immunity as the beneficial probiotic bacteria are symbiotic allies to your body that help: fight viruses, candida and other infections; produce B vitamins; and assist in detoxification. Probiotics help build up that “stress defense shield.”

 

We live in a time of unprecedented abundance. Through the Internet and the advancing health freedoms we are all enjoying, we have easy access to these superfoods, superherbs, and super health products.

When you start investigating and utilizing these substances consistently and regularly as part of your overall health and exercise program, you will notice that your immunity will step-by-step be enhanced. Your thoughts will have more clarity. Your overall energy will increase. You will also likely sleep better and perform better in athletic activities. Your overall productivity will improve. Digestive distress decreases. Feelings of well-being begin to dominate your life.

Superfoods and tonic superherbs can be added into anyone’s diet. Simply begin with the first one or few that you’re drawn to and go from there. Get out a blender and have fun. Make different teas with the superherbs or create new smoothies with the superfoods. Better yet, take your superherb tea and blend it with your superfoods to make the best elixirs ever.

21 Pearls of Wisdom for 21st Century Ascension

By: Brad Mullner, the Modern Health Coach

MHC hopes this newsletter finds you and yours, on the upside this monumental time in human history.  As we transition from the Age of Information into the Age of Wisdom, and Pisces into Aquarius, and Dark into Light, we are entering a brand new world.  Let’s usher in the big change, by balancing our body’s, minds, lives, and planet.  Starting within and working out is the premise of the following 21 pearls of wisdom.  Please take these from my heart and mind to yours, to rise above the current challenges.   Look no further than helping yourself, so you can help more people through… Please share far and wide my 21 points of survival, thriving and ascension…I’ve never been more serious in my whole life!  One Love! Happy tails…

Accept that there is a higher order – Call it what you want, please realize that there are bigger forces in play than mere consciousness and the scientific method can grasp.  We strive for singularity (harmony, unity, and Source) in a dualistic world (heaven, hell, yin, yang, sun, and moon).  The sooner you put your ego in check, and acknowledge your higher-self, the sooner your life will manifest toward making your deepest vision(s) come true.  We humans reside in the 3rd dimension, spirit entities fly in the 4th and God is omnipresent in the 5th dimension. Our goal is to get off the karmic wheel and go home to infinite Source in this lifetime! God speed and holy shift!

2 Human potential – As above so below.  We are divine creations (made of water, fat, bones and minerals) with unlimited potential just beginning to be realized. We are in essence a toroidal energy field of sacred geometrical proportions and forms, seeking affinity for higher vibrations.  Few individuals over time have proven the full potential like Jesus, Buddha, Allah, and anonymous ascended masters.  They all have transcended this dimension and illuminated and enhanced our view of the multi-verse reality for us.  They maxed out! Monkey see monkey do, right? Most damage to people is self inflicted, get out of your own way and identify blind spots.  Know what you don’t know. Good deeds and good intentions are light years apart. Listen to your gut. Modulate your frequency.  Conjure up your mustard.  Everything is energy, anything is possible. Shoot for the stars and work your way back.

3 Truly Know Thyself and follow the Golden Rule – Delve deeply inward and figure yourself out. Treat others the way you want treated. Follow these 2 rules to the Nth degree, its Human 101.  Know what makes you tick so you can tick-le others. Think about what, why and when you think and connect certain thoughts in succession to know how your brain works and why you think those things then.  Gain inner strength in these two rules and radiate your white light core out and attract the right resonance/vibe to you, viola Law of Attraction. Don’t be off balance reaching, you’ll get hurt.

4 Clear emotional and energetic trauma – Please for you and your loved ones sake, get over childhood and past relationship traumas. Clean the slate. E-motion is energy in motion, keep it that way; don’t let it fester inside.  Deal with things as they come up and learn to vocalize how you feel in a constructive and civil manner.  Go to youtube.com and look up ‘brad Yates EFT’ videos and tap out energies that no longer serve your higher good. Do it daily for weeks, takes 5 minutes a day and EFT (emotional freedom techniques/ tapping) is free. Talk, tap and yell it out…now.

5 Identify your weakest chakra(s) and take action to strengthen them – There are several ways find your weak link(s) (kinesiology, pendulum or quiz). You have 7 energy centers (chakras) that correspond directly to your 7 endocrine glands and energy zones.  Think rainbow. You want to be able to face the challenges and opportunities upcoming as a fully functioning energetic being, ready to ascend.  Root to the fruit and ground to the crown, you got to get up, to get down!

6 Detoxify your body – Babies are born with a dozen toxins at birth. Infertility, disorders, cancer are insane.  Start with your mouth and any mercury fillings have removed, rinse with salt water and silver daily. Reduce exposure to man-made chemicals, EMF Radiation, negative media. Instead: rebound, invert, sweat, and eat lots of plants and herbs. Eat light!  Chew well.  Exhale fully. Follow with organ cleanses (colon, liver, kidneys, parasite, and blood) and juice regularly.  Fiber and vitamin C is a poor man’s chelation. Clays, minerals, roots and oxygen are key too.

7 You are the cure – No doctor, pills, or surgery is going to cure the root problem, they will only manage symptoms. Your mind heals your body and your body fuels your mind. Take out the bad and put in the good.  Get after it from all angles physical, chemical, emotional, electrical, environmental, social, and quantum. Give your body what it needs, a rainbow rotation diet, pure spring water, fresh air, exercise, and love. Get and stay balanced.  It’s a fine line, at first.  Symptoms WILL fade away with the RIGHT procedures, protocols, nutrients and persistent focused mental fortitude. I promise!

8 De-Program and re-Program your mind – Dump the fear and breathe in the love and gratitude.  If you do not program your mind (with super + info) then the matrix style government, special interest globalists will program it for you.  Know your true history (before Sumeria), to plan your bright future.  The crap we learned growing up will leave you hanging.  Ultimate human potential is vibrating up to higher dimensions, and can be godly ridiculous.  Train your brain and mind to work for you.  You have all the tools you’ll need: mind, heart, a body and father time. Shine on you star!

9 Choose your thoughts and words carefully and constructively – You become what you think, and your words program those thoughts. Believe ~ behave ~ become.  Keep your head up and look around and perceive how beautiful life is. Take stock in yourself, and start with your thoughts and words. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life. Think future present “I am becoming ____.” Its your choice to be + instead of -.

10 Find purpose, fulfillment and happiness in life – Life is too short to live out someone else’s expectations of you. The American dream is dead. Start or join progressive projects.  Finance and forge a dream that makes you have invaluable meaning in YOUR LIFE and give back to others two fold. 

11 Find your gift and share it with the world – Do what you love and love what you do. The Universe wants you to succeed in your calling.  Spread your gift?  Give it away.  Pay it forward.  Don’t think A-head, think for all the heads. Be creative toward solutions in making it work for you and others that have similar problems and desires. The more you put it out there the more it comes back.

12 Find wholesome communities in your neighborhood and online – Community is our key going forward. Strength in numbers, rally around causes. Birds of a feather flock together. Start local with neighbors and reclaim public spaces back. Make your front yard a garden and gathering place.  Barter for services and goods and find local repurposed solutions to your everyday needs or create them.  Don’t live isolated, watching TV and being zombified with fear.

13 Diversify don’t be so specialized – Be a jack of all trades, learn new practical skill sets. Metro sexual is out, revolutionary DIY earthling is in. It’s going back to the farms and communities for real quality of life, as the city life diminishes its returns to its members.  Slow it down, keep it simple and trim the fat in life. Be balanced in what you can do for yourself.  Our society is too categorized with vein derivatives of consumerism.  People can’t even relate to each other anymore. Our humanity has been surpassed by our technology.

14 Reach out and get involved – We are all in this together so, get connected to legitimate grass roots organization, and local events and artisans that support human rights over corporate rights.  Real change happens from the bottom up, not the top down, people drive change not government.  This world needs us to rally and pull our consumer card away from sinister corporations that undermine our future, vote with your dollars and efforts.

15 Massive focused meditation can change the outcome globally and universally – This is why no one can tell you how 2013 is going to be, it’s up to us now to evoke the change from fear to love. Our collective consciousness can alter reality and protect us.  A 3,000 person group meditation focused on peace for 2 months in 1993 dropped crime in D.C. 25%. http://istpp.org/crime_prevention/ This mass focus affect has been proven time after time; changing the outcome of reality with your mind. Imagine that!  Tap into a global mediation online or local groups and create change inside out.

16 Manifest the best, be prepared for the worst – Well there are serious economic, environmental, social and political instabilities as well as geophysical uncertainties on today’s radar.  Their impact could be modest or monumental. The good news is, there is also a projected DNA upgrade in the cards for our fledgling species. Open your energy channels now so you are able to transform fully and activate all the DNA possible in the near future. We have up to 12 strands possible and only 2 activated now. Some aliens have 3 DNA activated. The frequency of love and photons from the sun connect your DNA telomeres.  Dusk and dawn sun gazing enlarges your pineal gland and feeds you in ways.

17 Don’t underestimate Earth shifts – The earth is alive, know your historical geophysics.  All the worlds’ religious books all start with floods.  A widely expected increase in sun and galactic activity, increases earthquakes, which yield tsunamis.  Earthquakes and volcanoes have gone up 400% and 500% since 1973.  Atlantis and Lumeria did exist on the 10,000 B.C shoreline.  MHC has identified 7 geophysical and galactic forces forecasted through 2013 by various ancient cultures, mediums, NASA, and scientists.  MHC’s 7 Saviors are: magnetic pole reversal, pole shift, big sun cycle, Nibiru, a 50k light year tall Milky Way core blast, galactic equatorial alignment, and procession of the equinox’s cycles.  Evolution happens in cyclical spurts not gradually (sorry Darwin).  Ever here of Edgar Cayce’s predictions? He is the best psychic ever at 90% right?  MHC feels it’s going to get worse quick, before it gets a whole lot better, so once the dust settles know that the meek (that’s us) shall inherent the earth.  Bunker down and rise up, in mass!

18 Be prepared, for a month long camping trip – Don’t panic, consider it an insurance premium, better safe than sorry. Google up “survival equipment supplies list” and build it or buy online asap.  Pretend the power and water are out and buy accordingly.  The power grid and water grid are crumbling and are very susceptible to sun storms, galactic forces and earth shifts for the next 2 years solar maximum.  You don’t want to wait on FEMA for anything.  Have enough stored food until your seeds take hold.  Have enough gasoline, bottled water, food and basic living supplies. Have plenty of hand tools to work the land.  The local convenient store won’t be stocked in tough times.   Buy books, map, lights and have a plan and a backup plan.

19 Alien Disclosure – There are more stars in the sky, than there are grains of sands on all the earth’s beaches. Odds are with Intelligent Design, we are not alone. Some say there are 3,000 species of aliens on earth!  Look for the government to keep suppressing close encounters, free energy and human rights.  Uncle Scam still wants to be the big man on campus.  YouTube up the “SETI” and “disclosure project.”  Be leery the government will try and pose as good guys (they have holographic and UFO technology) and disclose aliens as the bad guys (aka the next terrorists). Listen to the real crop circle artists, they know and care about our future.  Over 3,000 crop circles and a million UFO sightings cant all lie. NASA is like the Federal Reserve, private.

20 Question Authority – The government is not your friend, they have been hijacked by globalist elite illuminati NWO types.  The same 12 shadowy families rule the earth. Watch the movie Thrive free online, for power pyramid scheme and more. Since the staged 9/11, spawn the Patriot Act, our bill of rights is being erased.  The military can now take away you, your water, your stored food and your farm equipment without question. Why recently have over 117 world re-known scientists died mysteriously?  Technology and human suppression is alive and well, follow the money trail to find guilty parties pulling the strings. Ease up on the fluoride people.  Use the internet to call them out, enough is enough!  Practice common or maritime law.

21 Do your own research to find your answers – You have the world at your fingers. Knowledge is power. You just need right info to make good decision.  Don’t trust the easy quick answer. Dig for the treasure.  Consider the source.  I find Google and YouTube video searches a good start.
